Ashes to Fire: Believing is Seeing!

John 20:19-31

In this second week of Easter we find in scripture that the truth sometimes slowly sinks in.  While Mary tells the disciples of her encounter with Jesus we find them still locked in a house, frightened and forlorn.  And we too often are like they. Hearing that Jesus holds the keys to all power, but living without confidence, joy, and courage in a world of media, science, and politics that is hostile.  But Jesus comes in the midst of their fears and doubt, denying by his very presence that which they most feared, proving conclusively that he truly is Lord and God.  And he invites you also to believe!
